Donate $28 for the #28 Today!
the 28 in cloquet

Early in next year's operating season, the D&NE Locomotive #28 could be steamed up and pulling excursions on the North Shore Scneic Railroad. But we need your help!

To complete the operational restoration project, flues are needed for the locomotive's boiler. For a small contribution, you can be a part of preserving living railroad history in the Twin Ports.

The top picture shows the locomotive in its home shop in Cloquet, MN where it is being worked on.

28 Flues

Every dollar donated goes directly to getting this engine fired up. Any excess dollars will go towards finishing up the work and getting coal in the tender for the first run, that you will be a part of!

A dedication excursion will be held when the locomotive is complete, hopefully later this year. All contributions include free tickets for this historic ride behind steam power!

Donation Levels:

Donate $28: Get 1 free coach ticket on the dedication excursion.

Plaque level $100: Get 2 free coach tickets on the dedication excursion, and get your name on a plaque that will be mounted in the cab of the locomotive, forever.

Premiere level $280: Get 2 first class tickets with the contributor’s name mounted on a plaque that will be mounted in the cab of the locomotive, forever.

Tycoon level $500: A private table reserved for 4 in the first class seating on the dedication excursion, a name on the plaque to be mounted in the cab of the locomotive, and a free year membership at the Missabe 193 level to the LSRM.
